From its humble beginnings as a mock movie poster at 2013′s IF THEY CAME FROM WITHIN art exhibit to an honest-to-goodness feature film, Astron-6′s giallo tribute/parody, THE EDITOR , has its world premiere tonight at TIFF’s Midnight Madness programme.
The opening scene of Axelle Carolyn’s SOULMATE, one of many scenes cut by The British Board of Film Classification, is now available for viewing. A wise choice by the censors to protect the viewing public from “disturbing imagery” or arbitrary censorship of yet another horror film? You decide.
From its initial appearance as a movie poster for a fictional film ( as part of Rue Morgue’s IF THEY CAME FROM WITHIN art show ) to its incredibly-successful Indiegogo campaign, it’s been a long, strange road for THE EDITOR, the latest project by Winnipeg troublemakers, Astron-6 ( FATHER’S DAY, MANBORG ).Well, yesterday saw the culmination of this journey, with the announcement that THE EDITOR is the 10th and final film listed for TIFF’S Midnight Madness series.
